Got ITA, do I need to apply to PNP too?


I got my Express Entry ITA on Wednesday and I’m now filling out the PR application.
Do I need to simultaneously apply for PNP too? I have a job offer.

Or can I just do the PNP application? which one is faster to process?


PNP is a province oriented process that one can use to boost up their CRS score. PNP fetches additional 600 points and thereby helps in clinching the ITA for those who are falling short of the EE cut-offs. Since you have already received your ITA, there is no need to go for PNP.


If you already have ITA and can finish and submit your application before the 90 day deadline you don’t need PNP.
